So like so many other people our weeks are work filled and busy. In the current climate of virus fears and protest we have been keeping to ourselves, only going out for essentials.
We have a pretty nice set up in our backyard with pool, hot tub,swings, fire pit, hammocks and lots of outdoor games. The kids have bikes and scooters for the front yard time. We also walk the dog often. Our personal preference is to be outside and active so we are doing our best with everything going on.
So we are adapting to 2020. One of our newest hobbies is paddle boarding. We load up the family, a cooler with drinks and snacks and head out to the lake for some sun, fun, fresh air and exercise.
There is plenty of space for social distancing especially when we are on the lake. The kids get a chance to get away from the house and everyone has the opportunity to enjoy nature. It’s been a great get away from the new norm.
A blanket on the shore, a picnic in the cooler and lots of family interaction. It seems to be one of the only places that the kids don’t get on each other’s nerves. They are ju having too much fun.
It’s a process to load up and unload after we get back home but we have managed to streamline the process.
We are in Colorado and I know they summer will come to an end. As long as we have the warmer weather we will continue hitting the lake. We are discussing our plans for winter a fun already.
That being said, if you are looking for a fun, safe and enjoyable summer activity I personally recommend a day on the lake.
